Rebels fall in OT to Tigers

Tigers 4 Rebels 3 (OT)

The Red Deer Rebels went toe-to-toe with the Medicine Hat Tigers and didn’t blink, until overtime.

The Tigers got the last laugh with a 4-3 overtime victory in the tight Tuesday WHL central division battle.

Ryan Chyzowski played hero for the Tigers burying his second of the night just 1:46 into overtime, after the Rebels battled back twice to tie the game. Medicine Hat forward Brett Kemp had three assists in the victory.

Ethan Anders did all he could for the Rebels, turning aside 42 shots in the loss including 14 in the third period and overtime.

Josh Tarzwell got the Rebels on the board first, as the 19-year-old Red Deer product continues to roll. Tarzwell buried his 32nd goal of the year Tuesday at 13:02 of the first, he now has eight goals in his last nine games.

Medicine Hat responded with a pair before the period. Elijah Brown buried the first 2:28 after Tarzwell’s tally before Ryan Chyzowski notched his 33rd of the season shorthanded. The Tigers outshot Red Deer 17-9 in the opening frame.

Joel Sexsmith scored just his second career WHL goal to even the game earlier in the second.

Tigers rookie Cole Sillinger brought the home side ahead with 3:56 left in the period on the power play. The goal came just 17 seconds into an Arshdeep Bains holding minor.

With the Rebels down 3-2 in the third and less than 10 minutes to play, Arshdeep Bains buried his 18th of the year to knot the game at three.

The Rebels are back on the road Wednesday in Swift Current, before heading home to take on the Calgary Hitmen on March 14.
